Drinking enough is of vital importance. Without moisture we can not survive and the recommendation is to drink about 1.5 to 2 liters per day (1). But what are you best able to drink? Because I'm a Foodie fan of unprocessed food, this overview does not include light soft drinks, sweets and sugar-free ranjas. You can also leave the vegetable juices from the supermarket better. Because they often consist of 50% fruit, they still contain a lot of sugar, just like fruit juice. Drinking water prevents muscle pain. Unfortunately, (almost) all drinks for children also drop off, because they all contain a lot of sugar and / or sweeteners. This is clearly visible in this overview of the Nutrition Center. Water drinking and your eyes.
Drink plenty of clean water. It may be a bit of a faintness to put it on number one, but water is and remains the best thirst quencher. In the Netherlands the water is of super quality, it is completely sugar-free and moreover it comes from everyone.
My favorite brands are Pukka, Yogi Tea, Clipper, Celestial and ShotiMaa. Look out for some teas and teas with flavors, these can contain sugar (see here the broadcast about tea from Keuringsdienst of value). Let dissolving tea also lie to the left, it is bursting with sugar. Of course you can also choose herbal tea, fresh mint tea, ginger tea and tea made from fresh or dried tea leaves. Even health benefits are attributed to black and green tea. They lower blood pressure and lower your risk of stroke and diabetes (2).
A black cup, coffee with a dash of milk or a cappuccino. They contain none of three added sugar and all count as moisture. And no, you do not dry out coffee. Filter coffee even reduces the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes (2).
Also something for the kids. All packages have a high sugar content, except for a single exception. Wicky water with fruit and Sourcy Water with, among other things, the flavors strawberry, banana and orange are (as far as I know) the only ones that do not contain sugar. It is expensive, because it is no more than water with a hint of aroma.
You already saw them back in Eat as an Expert. Water with added pieces of lime, lemon, cucumber, basil, mint or orange. Wonderfully refreshing, cheap and without sugar.
Still want to drink something with a sweeter taste? Then fill your glass for half with a juice of your choice and fill the glass with water. Best of both worlds: 50% less sugar than the original juice and 50% more flavor than water!
Hearty appetite? Tomato juice is the outcome! It contains the least calories (and therefore sugar) of all the juices that exist. Tomato juice contains a lot of salt, so it is not a very good thirst quencher.
drink healthy. Is it bad to drink water while eating.
Sparkling water is spring water with carbonic acid, such as Spa Rood or sparkling water from a private label. Completely sugar free and delicious as a change at a birthday party. This one can also be pimped with slices of cucumber or slices of lime and lemon.
In addition, there are (sparkling) waters with taste for sale from various brands. Like Spa Bruisend, Sourcy Sparkling with taste or Bar-le-Duc mineral water with fruit. House brands now also have an extensive range of refreshing flavors (from lemon to coconut) without calories, sugar and sweetener. Enough choice.
Fancy a hot drink without caffeine and without sugar? Then 'fake coffee' from roasted spelled or chichorei (a carrot) might be something for you. A nutty taste and less than 10 kilocalories per cup.
